User opinions and reviews

  • ryan

try to tapped in the build number and it will automatically sets up as a developer and enabling the LTE or 4G setting.

  • pakboi

maybe your sim doesn't support 4G LTE. you might need to check it 1st , or if it is already an LTE SIM then check settings. Mobile network > network mode > select 4G or LTE.

  • Zobair

Wherever I searched, I found this grand prime is a 4g phone. Till now I didn't need 4g. But now when I'm trying to enable 4g, I'm not able to do that. There is only 2g and 3g in the network mode. Can anyone please suggest me any good solution?
